A month ago, I received a sample of the fresh vitamin nectar VIBRANCY BOOSTING FACE MASK after my purchase at Sephora. I had heard a lot about this mask from publications and online that I was eager to try it out. Right off the bat, I loved the fragrance which is huge because 9.5 times out of 10 I can't stand fragrance in skin care products; but the smell of freshly squeezed orange juice was strangely very comforting.

Disclaimer Please read the ingredient list above for possible allergen/fragrance that may not be appropriate for your skin type. . REPURCHASE: Yes!!! Actually, just repurchased.
RATING: 4.5 Pro Based on the claims /statistics claimed by the brand I will share my experience "Improves glow by 31% after first use": The first time I used the mask I did notice a glow to my skin. I wouldn't say it was by 31 percent but there was a glow to my skin. Before 4weeks I noticed my skin looked vibrant hence I bought another jar. Mind you, I gave been using the pure vitamin C serum by Wish trend as well so I think they are both responsible for the glow on my skin.
“After one use immediately smoothens the complexion of your skin”: This mask makes is great to use before a big event, because your skin looks and feels smoother and more relaxed.
Other positives: No break outs No stinging on application CON It can be a little difficult to take off if left on longer than 10mins. The clumps stick to your skin and makes it difficult to wipe off with a cloth or pad. I will suggest taking it off at the 10min mark
The packaging. I prefer mask or any product really in tubs or air tight containers to retain active ingredients and prevent contamination.
Despite the presence of hydrating ingredients like PANTHENOL, it really didn't do as much as sheet mask would do when it comes to hydrating the skin.
In conclusion, great product would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking for a product instant skin pick me up.
